Hopefully someone can help me. I have been archiving my grandmother and grandfather's letters. Living in NYC and Memphis, separated by land, then in 1917, separated by the war, until she moved to Memphis in 1919. They were married in 1917. She was the 1st woman pharmacist in NYC, at Bellevue Hospital, and he an attorney in Memphis. Besides their love yearnings due to the separations, these are snapshots of the times, as well as documenting the struggles of a young phramacist in the early 1900's. I'd love to post a compilation of these letters, here or somewhere else. I think they are important pieces of our history. Is it possible to post several pdf's in to one "book" or does anyone have any suggestions for another location or way to post these letters. There are many. Thanks.

If nothing else you could scan the original letters and compile them to a new PDF (or perhaps OpenDocument text). OpenOffice will provide for this.

I'm scanning and saving each as a multi-page pdf. via Photoshop. I'd just like a place on line where I can upload them all. My grandmothers experiences as the 1st woman pharmacist in NYC are fascinating. Any suggestions on where to put them or how the best way to compile as one large document would be appreciated.
